Is porn a public health crisis?

The Porn Crisis that Isn't

Interesting article on state legislation declaring porn a public health crisis.
Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us. ~Calvin & Hobbes

Only in these eyes of those pushing the legislation. Some people aren't happy unless they can tell others how to live.

I think the article makes the excellent point that porn is not inherently harmful or "evil", but that there are many potential avenues for severe issues in the production, distribution, and consumption of porn, and that while steps should probably be taken to mitigate those issues, we should make sure we're addressing the real issues, and not some suite of puritanical mores mandated by the most conservative sects of our society.

If you consider the impact on culture tv shows like special victims SVU have on people who do not watch porn.
Imagine if you will a writer with access to real police reports and some of the absolute atrocities and hideous acts that have been committed against innocent individuals over the years in there arsenal to write scripts for the show .
But needing to take it over the top so possibly they could win a award or career advancement they have to in there minds imagine and create a scenario sicker than the sickest of acts that are already on the books .

Then put it on prime time television to sell advertising spots with .

I will not and do not watch shows like SVU

It takes a very sick individual to write and produce media like that .

Porn no big deal

Portraying rape,murder,and other atrocities and even imaging and creating sicker than sick wired things we all hope never happens to anyone we know are anyone period I think is very disturbing.

One concern I have regarding the current state of porn that I see, when I'm just perusing random "porn", is that there is a lot more degradation/humiliation stuff out there than I remember there being. And the rough stuff seems to get rougher and rougher. In some ways, it's bad enough that bodies and acts are being objectified, but to add in these new levels of violence and dehumanization in conjunction with sexuality? Seems really... well, dangerous.

But then, I don't like the hurking, runny mascara, red-eyed, prolapsed torture porn that seems to be all the rage. I would much prefer to see people really enjoying themselves without triggering their own body's warning and defense mechanisms (tearing, gagging, inflammation, vomiting, etc.), or requiring an apprenticeship with Cirque de Soleil... I recognize the need to get the shot, but some of us don't bend that way, or that much. At least, not physically... :YMDEVIL:

Agreed. I have no use for acts that are or even look painful. It's not interesting or attractive to me or even happy.

I'm a regular meat and potatoes guy like you gents. There's a lot of stuff I just don't understand.

My son is just starting HS. He notices girls, but not yet into them. He's asked me a few things that classmates have mentioned that I have never heard of. So I had to search up later. And some of this I'm like, WHO THINKS OF THIS CRAP! I.E. Alabama hot pocket. WTF!

Nice guys finish last? Yes we do! Our women always finish first. Multiple times!
My sparkling personality compensates for not being hung like a horse.
